Rob Lowe and Kaley Cuoco Rob Lowe and Kaley Cuoco

After bringing the laughs to NBC's Parks and Recreation, Rob Lowe will be shifting back to drama.

The Emmy-nominated actor will play the womanizing police officer Drew Peterson, who was arrested in connection to the killing of his third wife, in the Lifetime movie tentatively titled The Drew Peterson Story, aka Ladykiller, Deadline reports.

The Big Bang Theory's Kaley Cuoco will play Peterson's fourth wife Stacy.

Peterson's third wife Kathleen was found drowned in a bathtub, and although her death was initially ruled as accidental, Stacy's suspicious disappearance later prompted authorities to exhume Kathleen's body. After another forensic examination revealed signs of struggle before drowning, the cause of death was revised to homicide.

Peterson is currently in Will County Jail in Ill., awaiting trial.
